    A refreshing romance

    Tamara Fontaine has worked diligently on making her marriage perfect. She does everything right without being a bridezilla. Now the time to exchange vows is here, but one problem occurs; the groom fails to show up leaving her with a ton of bills and a mortgage she cannot afford.------

    Humiliated, but financially strapped and sinking deeper into the abyss, she listens carefully to the offer by Ghanaian scientist Kwabena "Ben " Opoku who needs a green card to remain in the states. They marry with him paying off her bills and she giving him the avenue to remain in the country. However, as they fall in love, Tamara fears hurt as she learned once again at the altar that men don't love plus size women; Ben has to prove her hypothesis wrong one experiment at a time.----------

    Ben makes this a refreshing marriage of convenience contemporary romance as his Ghanaian heritage comes to life as much as his legal efforts to remain in the country in spite of his being a scientist and the anti immigration fervor still lingering. The story line is driven by the lead couple and though the audience will know where it will end, traveling the road with this pair is entertaining as like the author's name each is a gem of a character.-------------

    Kawbena aka Ben what a great guy, he is sexy, sweet and nice I love him, Tamara I like her but I have to admit sometimes she annoy me like nobody in a book can, but I get it. When you and your life feel crappy it tends to bring out the worst in some people, also when they came so close to being intimate so many times even I got frustrated along with Kawbena. I do have to say I'm split in the middle with this book, although I liked it it didn't really pick up for me until maybe chapter 10, where alot more things started to happen, don't worry there are alot more chapters after that. I know a lot of Carribean readers can relate to this story so for me it's surely a plus. I liked the book and all the characters that also were associated in the story. For readers that like to the point story its a very detailed and in depth storyline.

    I have to say also say this, I walked away with a very important quote from the book that I have never heard and will use in my everyday life. It's the quote from Kawbena's grandfather " never boost of you accomplishment, because if they matter it will speak for itself" wonderful.

    SO SWEET!!!

    This story totally caught me by surprise. I wasn't expecting such a heartwarming story. The storyline is well written and captivating. No need to go into details because the other reviews did so well. This is really a SWEET love story. Its a keeper and I will read again.
